"Originally published in Great Britain in 2010 by Hodder & Stoughton"--T.p. verso.
"Named One of the Year's Top Ten Crime Books in the UK... A Masterwork of Suspense from "Iceland's Crime Queen" (The Scotsman) In 1973, a volcanic eruption buried an entire Icelandic village in lava and ash. Now this macabre tourist attraction proves deadly once again--when the discovery of fresh bodies casts a shadow of suspicion onto Markus Magnusson, a man accused of killing his childhood sweetheart. His attorney Thora Gudmundsdottir finds that her client has a most inventive story to tell. But the locals seem oddly reluctant to back him up... Filled with unforgettable characters, unexpected twists, and superb psychological suspense, Ashes to Dust is a superlative thriller from an acclaimed master of Nordic fiction"-- Provided by publisher.
